There is not enough darkness in all the world to put out the light of even one small candle.
Burn not thy fingers to snuff another man's candle.
Reputation is only a candle, of wavering and uncertain flame, and easily blown out, but it is the light by which the world looks for and finds merit.
James Russell Lowell
A candle loses nothing by lighting another candle.
Just as a candle cannot burn without fire,
men cannot live without a spiritual life.
It is a great pity but tis certain from every day's observation of man, that he may be set on fire like a candle, at either end provided there is a sufficient wick standing out.
Curiosity is the wick in the candle of learning.
William Arthur Ward
Life is no brief candle to me. It is a sort of splendid torch which I have got a hold of for the moment, and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing it onto future generations.
George Bernard Shaw
It is better to light a candle that to curse the darkness.
There are two ways of spreading light:
to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it.
Thousands of candles can be lit from a single candle,
and the life of the candle will not be shortened.
Happiness never decreases by being shared.
